Pumpkin Bread
one 15 oz can of Pure Pumpkin (not pie mix)
one box 18 oz Spice cake mix
two egg yolks (beaten)

Directions: Mix together and pour into individual mini-bread pans (spray with non-
stick cooking spray first) or muffin cups. Bake 15-20 min at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Recipe variations: Try carrot cake mix with 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup no sugar-added applesauce, 2 tablespoons milled flax seed and 1 egg.

Chopped nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon and molasses are wonderful additions too.
